There are a few laws that govern life. For example, if you drop Al Franken from the Sears Tower in Chicago, gravity will drive him into the pavement at a rate of thirty two feet per second. A diet of fudge, pixy sticks and Schlitz will eventually result in a sensation not unlike indigestion, and some shooting pains in your left arm. If you are going to be a passenger in Ted Kennedys car, wear water wings. Last but not least, a law of nature is that liberals hate the military and all who serve in it.
Asking a liberal to appreciate what the military has meant to this country is akin to asking a sloth to appreciate the branches that keep it high above the predators. For the sloth to value the contribution the branches make to its security it would require the ability to recognize a pattern. Liberals are handicapped in the area of pattern recognition. That is why the sun rising every morning still takes these folks by complete surprise.
Most liberals start every speech with the words, We support the troops. First of all, if they actually did support our soldiers they wouldnt feel the need to keep reminding us how much they support the efforts of our young men and women in uniform. Support from liberals has come in some pretty unusual forms. Bill Clinton cut the pay of servicemen to the point where a large percentage of military personal needed to go on food stamps. They followed this up by dismantling the intelligence departments through the 90s, and had the hubris to complain about the lack of intelligence before 9/11 and the Iraq war. As an encore, the Clintons along with Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright gave North Korea the very nuclear technology they are now threatening us with. There is a better then 50/50 chance that American soldiers will eventually lose their lives in North Korea cleaning up this mess. Why is it when a liberal supports our military it always resembles a swift kick to the groin??
This brings us back to the liberals pattern recognition problems. When a liberal is confronted with the undisputable results of their actions, they generally just look at you as if you have just handed them a dead squirrel. After this they will complain, at length, about Halliburton, then go and fantasize about sticking American soldiers with hat pins. This takes us to the ugliest cause and effect: the pattern they dont want us to recognize. The actions of a liberal Senator and his allies in the media have finally and verifiably caused the death of American soldiers in Iraq.
On May 9th, Newsweek published an article that described desecration of the Quran by American military personnel. Ultimately, the story Newsweek presented turned out to be a fabrication. The damage had been done, though.
Senator Dick Durbin (D-Illinois) followed this incident on June 14th with comments about prisoners held at the military complex at Guantanamo Bay. Senator Durbin compared the treatment of Muslim prisoners by American soldiers to Russian Gulags and Nazi Germany. He cited turning up the air condition and playing them hip-hop music as part of the abuse the terrorists suffered. Fundamentally, according to Dick, we made these criminals cold and played them rap music. Durbin calls this Naziesque torture (around here that is called a Saturday night in Detroit). Nazis conducted medical experiments on their prisoners and when they got bored, skinned some of them alive. Though I will agree that listening to Eminem is mildly unpleasant, I would rather sit through the 8 Mile soundtrack then be skinned and have my hide turned into leather for some SS members briefcase. The day I can purchase Arab skin shoes at my local Walmart is the day Durbin can call our soldiers Nazis.
By now these events are both old news. What hasnt been reported though is that combat deaths of American soldiers in Iraq spiked after both of these incidents.
According to CNN, the months following the November, 2004 military offensive in Fallujah saw a drop in American combat deaths. From January, 2004 to the end of November, 2004, an average of 60 American soldiers per month died as a result of clashes with terrorists in Iraq. After the November Fallujah offensive, the number of combat deaths of American military personnel showed a steady decline (55 in January, 41 in February, 31 in March and 44 in April). The average dropped to 43 per month. May and June saw an increase in battle fatalities. The number jumped from the average of 43 to 69 for May and 67 in June. This increase in battlefield deaths coincides with the Newsweek story and the comments by Senator Durbin. Both incidents were covered heavily by Al Jazeera and other Middle Eastern news sources. Do you think the liberals can see this pattern, or will they stubbornly stick to their talking points and keep chanting, Bush lied, Soldiers died!
Most hard core liberals only fantasize about killing American soldiers. Those pesky laws about murder and treason keep them from doing it themselves. They have gotten around that though, by using Muslim terrorists to do their dirty work for them. Of course they dont refer to them as terrorists. Most liberals just call them their core constituency.
Who is Al Franken?
I'd love to be first in a slapping line for the lot of them.
Lord HawHaw and Tokyo Rose were traitors, so is Durbin.

Does anyone remember Albright dancing the hula in front of the PRK Presidium at their birthday bash?
What a headline!
Yes, I remember mad maddie doing the dance. I guess it was a dance. Furthermore, I think she was batting her eyelashes at him, smoochie, cootchie!
Good post, Char! The title deserves a "slert" tag! ;o)
Brian Cherry seems to have his heart in the exactly right place; he should consider staying a little farther away from higher mathematics, though.
The title says it all, but the rest of the article is worth the read too. Thanks for posting.
The increase in deaths followed the actions by Newsweek and Durbin. That doesn't mean the increase was caused by those actions.
Which doesn't mean the increase wasn't caused by those actions, either.
No it won't. Not unless the Sears Tower is approximately sixteen feet tall.
But Franken has more density than anything else on the planet. The only way to verify this formula is to drop Franken. Of course we wouldn't care about the numbers after that happened.

Perhaps they meant to say 32 feet per second per second -- the accleration of gravity.
Tymesup- you and I are not on the same page. I was referring to the statement about falling off the Sears tower, and splatting on the pavement at 32 feet per second. Mr. Cherry was using the figure of the acceleration of a body falling to earth, PER SECOND. 32 feet per secomd is far from the actual speed of the final splat from the top of the Sears tower. And it was a shame, that it was his first statement, because, as I said, his heart is in the right place.
